Lauryn Hill Celebrates Prison Release With New “Consumerism” Song!

Ms. Lauryn Hill just released a new single on the eve of getting released from prison after serving three-months for tax evasion.

In her new song “Consumerism,” Lauryn touches on “corporate greed” and “commercialism.”

“Consumerism is part of some material I was trying to finish before I had to come in. We did our best to eek out a mix via verbal and emailed direction, thanks to the crew of surrogate ears on the other side,” Hill says in a press release.

“Letters From Exile is material written from a certain space, in a certain place. I felt the need to discuss the underlying socio-political, cultural paradigm as I saw it. I haven’t been able to watch the news too much recently, so I’m not hip on everything going on. But inspiration of this sort is a kind of news in and of itself, and often times contains an urgency that precedes what happens. I couldn’t imagine it not being relevant. Messages like these I imagine find their audience, or their audience finds them, like water seeking it’s level”.

Listen to the track below:

And while in prison, Hill reportedly inked a deal with Sony to produce an upcoming album.
